NO to developers’ charter. YES to homes for locals

Posted on: 18th April 2021

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. Cornwall is one of the fastest developing places in the country. Our housing stock has doubled in the last forty years. But the housing problems of locals have got worse. Conservatives forced Cornwall to take another 52,500 homes in the current plan (2010-2030) and now want to increase again by over 80,000! […]

Conservatives to reinforce second home tax loop-hole, not remove it

Posted on: 25th March 2021

Andrew George was first to expose the multi-million second home tax loophole introduced by the Conservatives a decade ago. He says the apparent “crack-down” on it announced this week “is just pre-election confetti and will, if anything, merely reinforce the problem of a system rigged in favour of property investors and second homers to the […]

Over £100 million in Covid aid given to second homers – Chancellor should claw it back.

Posted on: 26th February 2021

Revealed – over £100m of Cornwall’s covid aid claimed by second home owners. It should instead be used for locals in housing need. I’ve also asked one Conservative MP second homer to back my call. Over £100 million of Cornwall’s Covid aid money has been handed out to second home owners since the first lockdown. […]

Destructive NHS Act to be scrapped – “I told you so”

Posted on: 11th February 2021

The NHS “reforms” introduced a decade ago will apparently be reversed. I spent years fighting the Conservatives and even folk in my own Party who became seduced into accepting these evidently ridiculous and destructive “reforms”. Am I now entitled to say “I told you so”? This is what I said 9 years ago https://www.andrewgeorge.org.uk/no-health-bill-is-better-than-a-bad-one/ – one of […]

Perpetrators should compensate fishermen

Posted on: 15th January 2021

“I agree with the call for fishermen to be compensated. The perpetrators of the dishonest hoax played on our fishermen should compensate the industry.” Former Shadow Fishing Minister, Andrew George – who correctly warned the fishing industry of the false “take back control” Brexit promises to the fishing industry since before the 2016 referendum – […]

Brexit export hurdles and complexity – NOT unexpected

Posted on: 8th January 2021

The media is now reporting post-Brexit export hurdles and complexity as if this had not been forewarned. If they’d attended any of my public meetings which offered technical advice and guidance on the necessary preparations for Brexit they would have been aware of the challenges faced, especially for those exporting perishable or live goods like […]

Comment on Brexit activists’ illegal flag stunt

Posted on: 3rd January 2021

Our Union flag should be respected not abused. I’ve been asked for comment about the illegal misuse of public flag-poles on the Penzance prom in a political stunt by Brexit enthusiasts. For my own part I have good reason to be proud, indeed enthusiastic about our Union flag and its use. Members of my family […]

Brexit: Time to move on …and to build a future of hope for young people

Posted on: 28th December 2020

Whether you like it or loath it, Brexit’s happening. While the rump of right-wing Brexiteers who lied and led us to this are living their dream about half of the country’s in mourning. But it’s time to move on. What’s done is done. It would be understandable for 2016 Referendum  “losers” to adopt an “I […]

Covid – Government saved by the vaccine?

Posted on: 8th December 2020

What lessons can we learn from the handling of the pandemic in the UK? Has this been a case of NHS and other front-line worker Lions led by donkeys? Or has the UK fared well in difficult circumstances? I’ve assembled an excellent panel of expert speakers at a free webinar to take place next Wednesday 16th […]

Brexit – deal or no deal? What will it mean for us?

Posted on: 7th December 2020

There remains much uncertainty whether the UK will secure a deal with the EU prior to our exit from the EU in a matter of days… So I’ve arranged a free webinar with a panel of brilliant and well-informed speakers. I’ve expanded ticket options to allow for growing interest and numbers. To register please follow […]
